Colleges Week

Rotherham College is proud to support the national ‘Love Our Colleges’ campaign running as part of Colleges Week from Monday 9th October to Friday 20th October.

Colleges Week is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate and highlight the opportunities that colleges can provide their students, and the driving force they can act as to bring positive change in the communities they serve. It illustrates the need for investment in the Further Education sector.

“It is incredibly rewarding to see the life changing impact that our colleges have on the thousands of students, and apprentices every year. During the Love Our Colleges Week we are celebrating our students, our staff and the skills that our students have and showcase, as well as the skills they learn from our staff.”

“Our excellent relationship with employers and other external partners also play a big part in the skills our students learn and the development of an innovative curriculum to ensure our learners are industry ready.”

Jason Austin, CEO and Principal for the RNN Group

RNN Group’s family of colleges (Rotherham College, North Notts College and Dearne Valley College) continue to deliver top-class learning in dedicated facilities. Important skills are taught by industry-experienced tutors. The staff at RNN Group continue to devote their professionalism and passion to working in education environments.

Gathering national support, the campaign is led by The Association of Colleges in partnership with the National Union of Students, Association of School and College Leaders, University and Colleges Union, Unison, GMB, TUC and National Education Union.

“Being at college puts you in a work-based mindset rather than a strict educational one. Being here gets you ready for work with whatever you want to progress onto.”

“I’ve also been able to meet professionals in the workplace and get an idea of what the industry is like.”
